This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, sculptor, architect, illustrator, educator and commercial artist, Wilfred Henry Stedman also had a wide-ranging career geographically.  He was born in England and moved to Canada with his family when he was age fourteen.  For five years, he was an apprentice to a Winnipeg architect and attended St. Mary’s College.  In 1914, he became a practicing architect in Wisconsin, but shortly after re-focused his direction to fine-art painting.

Stedman enrolled at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and from 1916 to 1917, studied at the Art Students League in New York with teachers including Frank DuMond, Francis Mora, Harvey Dunn and Birger Sandzen.

During World War I, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served with the Expeditionary Forces in France on the staff of General John Pershing.  After the war, he remained in France for self-study and classes at the University of Besancon.

When he returned to the United States, he was a freelance illustrator in New York City and then went to Colorado Springs to serve as Director of Industrial Arts at the Broadmoor Art Academy.  For two years, he was also Director of the U.S. Veterans Bureau Art School in Colorado Springs.

In 1925, Stedman moved to Houston, Texas where he opened a studio and gave art lessons.  In 1928, he married one of his students, Myrtle Kelly, and in 1934, the couple moved to Tesuque, New Mexico where they operated a fruit orchard and had a business of restoring adobe structures.

During World War II, he served as an architectural draftsman at Los Alamos.  After the War, he worked for New Mexico publications including New Mexico Magazine where he was Art Director from 1935 to 1950, and Santa Fe Style Homes, later changed to the name of Adobe Architecture, for Builders Supply Company.  He illustrated Cattle Trails of the Old West by Jack Potter, Rails That Climb by Edwart Billinger and On the Trail by Jean Burroughs.

Wilfred Stedman died in a Santa Fe hospital in 1950, after a brief illness.

His work is in the permanent collections of Rice University in Houston, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Koshare Kiva Museum in La Junta, Denver Art Museum, and Santa Fe Museum of Fine Arts.
